American Library Association,
Pub. Date:
This volume, for use by librarians in readers' advisory and collection development, but also valuable to patrons, covers working with nonfiction readers in a readers' advisory context. After discussing the conceptual groundwork for the service and methods for working with nonfiction, Wyatt, a collection development and readers' advisory librarian, outlines the categories of history, true crime, true adventure, science, memoir, food/cooking, travel, and sports. Each of these chapters introduces the subject, explores its appeals, describes the types of books common to the subject, and lists key authors, titles, and benchmark titles for librarians to read and suggest. Read-alike and read-around titles are suggested, as are related awards and links to sites listing them. Chapters on learning and marketing a collection and whole collection readers' advisory service conclude the volume. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
